How do I get my authorization code for domain transfer?

  1. Hi - I've been looking for a way to get my authorization code. I went to my dashboard > store > my domains, but had no option for domain administration, which has held me up. I also don't have private registration, so that solution doesn't work for me either. Is there a way to email WordPress support directly, or a workaround for getting your authorization code?

    The blog I need help with is imagetovision.com.

  2. Thank you. I've tried those links already. I get stuck where I don't have the option of domain administration. It's just not there at all. Is there another way?

  4. Hi Be'Anka,

    In order to transfer the domain and access the Domain Administration, you will need to be logged in as the owner of the domain upgrade. Currently, the domain on your blog is not associated with your current account. Is there another account or user on your blog that may have purchased the domain?

    Just a note once you're logged in under the appropriate account (the owner of the domain), we've recently changed the interface for transferring domains. The full instructions (with updated screenshots) can be found here:

  5. Hi Jeremey - Thanks for your response. I figured this out a little before you sent it. Excuse my slow moment. :) I went through the remaining steps and I'm all good to go! Thanks, again.

  6. Not a problem! I'm glad you were able to get this figured out. Let us know if you need anything else.
